Rescue 348 Abducted Students In 7 Days Or We’ll Do It – Bamgbose Tells Buhari

National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, Barrister Olusegun Bamgbose, Esq., has given President Muhammadu Buhari seven days to secure the release of the 348 students held hostage by the bandits.

Bamgbose said he will do everything humanly possible to ensure the release of the students if the Buhari government fails to do so in the next week.

In a statement on Friday, Bamgbose vowed that his group will do whatever it takes while informing the traumatized parents that their children will soon regain freedom.

“Take me by my word. This is not political talk but reality. We shall make wide consultations and get these students out soon,” he said.

“It is never a good development that our students have become easy prey to the heartless bandits, who have formed the habit of abducting them for the sake of ransom,” he added.

There are over 348 students currently held hostage by bandits with the latest abduction of 121 students in Kaduna State.

About 227 are still languishing in bandits’ dens many weeks after they were abducted from their schools in Niger, Kebbi, and Kaduna State.

In Niger State, no less than 136 pupils of Salihu Tanko Islamiya School, Tegina, were abducted on May 30 and they are yet to be released by their abductors.

In Kebbi State, 83 students and 7 staff members of the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri are still in captivity of the bandits 19 days after the hoodlums abducted 94 students and 8 workers from the school.

“Things cannot continue this way. I feel for these innocent students, especially the female ones that could suffer sexual abuse. I believe the time to decisively act has come.

“We will give President Buhari just 7 days to secure the release of these 348 students held hostage by the bandits or we shall do everything humanly possible to get them out of the bandits’ cage. One can’t imagine what these students are passing through and even the parents.
